Sacred Legacy have crammed as many genres of metal as possible into this offering. Although described as Death/Thrash Metal, you can easily throw in equal quantities of Metalcore, Powermetal and Melodic, as well as some good old piano-ivory-tinkling on the instrumental ‘Black Velvet Part.1’.
To the stuck-in-the-mud purist, all this crossing from genre to genre might seem abhorrent, but this really works big time. The guitar work of Ahmed Shahyd is nothing short of sublime throughout.
This album originally surfaced in 2008, but if a wider re-issue was ever needed, then it’s for this band hailing from the Maldives. Now under the umbrella of www.rockngrowl.com , a more international future surely awaits.
